NAVAL – MARITIME AND
Located in the extreme northwest of the Iberian Peninsula, the privileged geographical situation of Galicia, with more than 1500 km of coastline, make this an ideal enclave for the location of the naval industry. Altogether, the naval activity in Galicia employs 10862 people.
We have a naval industry that offers a wide range of services for the construction and repair of ships; located mainly in the estuaries of Vigo, Pontevedra and Ferrol.
In these locations, the geographical characteristics of the Vigo estuary stand out due to its natural conditions of currents, shelter and protection, and, in the Ferrol estuary, the facilities of the public shipyards of Navantia. In all of them, there are numerous private shipyards and the entire auxiliary industry, forming a highly competitive internationally recognised business framework.
